TestFairy vs TestFlight: What are the differences?

TestFairy: Painless Beta Testing. When testing apps in the crowd, you never know what exactly was done, and what went wrong on the client side. TestFairy shows you a video of the exact test that was done, including CPU, memory, GPS, network and a lot more; TestFlight: iOS beta testing on the fly. With TestFlight, developers simply upload a build, and the testers can install it directly from their device, over the air.

TestFairy and TestFlight can be primarily classified as "Beta Testing / Mobile App Distribution" tools.

Some of the features offered by TestFairy are:

  • App distribution
  • Video recording
  • Crash handler

On the other hand, TestFlight provides the following key features:

  • Sessions- Discover how testers are using your application. Watch as they progress and take unexpected turns.
  • Crash Reports- Reported in realtime, with environment snapshots and full session activity.
  • In-App Questions- The most effective way to get tester feedback. Get the answers you need by asking questions the moment a checkpoint is passed.

What are some alternatives to TestFairy and TestFlight?
HockeyApp
HockeyApp is the best way to collect live crash reports, get feedback from your users, distribute your betas, and analyze your test coverage.
Crashlytics
Instead of just showing you the stack trace, Crashlytics performs deep analysis of each and every thread. We de-prioritize lines that don't matter while highlighting the interesting ones. This makes reading stack traces easier, faster, and far more useful! Crashlytics' intelligent grouping can take 50,000 crashes, distill them down to 20 unique issues, and then tell you which 3 are the most important to fix.
Fabric
Fabric is a Python (2.5-2.7) library and command-line tool for streamlining the use of SSH for application deployment or systems administration tasks. It provides a basic suite of operations for executing local or remote shell commands (normally or via sudo) and uploading/downloading files, as well as auxiliary functionality such as prompting the running user for input, or aborting execution.
Instabug
Instabug is a platform for Real-Time Contextual Insights that completely takes care of your bug reporting and user feedback process; to accelerate your workflow and allow you to release with confidence.
Fabric by Twitter
Installing and managing a wide range of SDKs can be cumbersome and complex. Fabric solves this problem by combining all seven of our SDKs under one roof and organizing them into three Kits: the Crashlytics Kit, the Twitter Kit, and the MoPub Kit.
